Interpretive Summary: Agriculture faces the enormous challenge of efficiently and sustainably producing a safe, dependable food supply for a growing world population. Meeting this challenge requires the development and management of crop varieties that will perform well in spite of increased weather variability. To address this challenge, an ambitious widescale plant phenotyping initiative is proposed which will expand our understanding of the interacting roles of crop genomes and crop environments (including weather and management practices) on crop performance. By improving our ability to predict crop performance in diverse environments, this initiative will enhance our capability to develop new varieties and to manage the effects of weather variability on crop productivity. The Genomes to Fields Initiative serves as the foundation for such a national crop phenotyping initiative.

Technical Abstract: This report provides information about the public release of the 2018–2019 Maize G X E project of the Genomes to Fields (G2F) Initiative datasets. G2F is an umbrella initiative that evaluates maize hybrids and inbred lines across multiple environments and makes available phenotypic, genotypic, environmental, and metadata information. The initiative understands the necessity to characterize and deploy public sources of genetic diversity to face the challenges for more sustainable agriculture in the context of variable environmental conditions.
